Physical Examination

All students admitted to the program are required to complete a satisfactory physical examination, immunization documentation verifying freedom of communicable disease, and a social security referenced background check. A Tuberculin Skin Test must be part of the examination.  The student must submit the results of the TB skin test and a statement (or form) from the physician confirming these have been completed. The skin test results and statement must be submitted to the Program Director.

Students who plan to work on an ambulance will be required to take the Department of Transportation (DOT) physical examination.

This examination, including the TB skin test will meet the program requirement. The DOT examination form may be obtained from the DMV. The DOT examination does not include the TB skin test; please request this test from your physician, or obtain the skin test from the Skyline College Health Center.

Students who do not comply with this requirement will not be eligible for EMT certification.
